That tower does not look happy...
@SprinkleOtter Oh, those 3 Technic pins are holding it up just fine.....(don't worry, I took it down right after I shot the photo, I thought it looked precarious as well!)
Now hoping they arrive before the end of the school holidays so we can have a 'build fest' next week as I'm off with the kids for 2 days.
also got the iconic chess set to take (a bit) advantage of promos at [email protected] 50€ for 1600 pieces isn't the worst deal.
The new Goblins sets out this year have peeked my interest in the Elves theme. I initially thought the colours and bling were excessive but they have grown on me! Especially when I'm drinking a glass of wine!! :)
- #30259 "Azari's Magic Fire" from eBay
- #41075 "The Elves' Treetop Hideway" from Toys R Us (no discount)
- #41078 "Skyra's Mysterious Sky Castle" from Toys R Us (9% discount)
Bully Blinders! Pinchers of Peril! Slick Shoes!
75156 - Krennic's Imperial Shuttle - £49.99 (Argos), free 40252 - Mini Volkswagen Beetle, triple VIP points and an additional 100 VIP points! Now it's time to build!
If you're quick, you might be lucky as well.
At £3 a go my days of completing every series are over so I just purchase the ones I like (and a few duplicates of the ones I really like)
Nobody puts The Collector in the corner!
I'm not willing (at present) to pay the going price for a real version and haven't managed to find a decent Lego based clone.
could have got this set from lego for "may the 4th" offer (10%) off. but getting it from TRU gives me more saving. about £15 more in all.
also got #75119 for £6.99 from amazon,
just need to work out what to get for the R2-D2 freebie next week.
@Dad..hi..do you mind me asking who you purchased from..as i might go down that route?...ta
Dumb question: if they are sealed, how do you know you got them all, as opposed to a bunch of duplicates?
I messaged the seller and explained that they sent me the wrong item and that I could tell just by feeling the pack. I felt bad about the whole thing b/c I could tell the seller thought I was ripping him off and was pulling a switch-a-roo, but that absolutely wasn't the case at all - they screwed up. The person ultimately refunded my money and sent the cowboy back (still sealed).
So... Shit happens when buying sealed CMF. Always a chance of a mistake.
Also, picked up Batwing polys at Target though I swung and missed looking for the cheap Easter polys.
These things happen.
In a Walmart I did find a #31036 Toy & Grocery Shop for $30...I know it's not a great price and the box was banged up a bit, but it has good pieces I think are worth like doors and windows. At another Walmart I found #30521 Mini Batmobile and #30496 U-Wing. A bit odd since they had a display and all, and I had never seen a display like that at any Walmart before.
#75144 UCS Snowspeeder just ordered :-)
Lego itch scratched, minimum expenditure. Happy! :)
#75060 Slave I with 10% off. (£161.99)
#30611 R2-D2 (Free.)
i had to have that R2 D2, so had to use up my VIP points,
the only set that lego.com had that i still wish to have, that i don't already have a double of in some forum or other is Slave I. (I own the 2011 Millennium Falcon, i own Poe's x-wing, I own a smaller TIE fighter so the big one is not a need to own, the deathstar is out of my price range, and other set's I can get for less from other shops.)
so i only ended up paying £111.99 for Slave I.
@TheFew @VorpalRyu re MB star trek:
yeah, MB has some molds that LEGO doesn't (part of the fun is the change of pace). and licensed stuff in particular has unique figures and prints. So I quickly ruled out getting the instructions and building in LEGO.
I haven't had time or space for the Enterprise model yet but I've done some of the smaller sets. Been meaning to post comments, but don't wanna type them up right now and will put in a different thread when I do.
@mmozzano buying only the figures I like has been my policy since I got into CMFs. I spend more than enoguh on them and LEGO in general as is without playing gotta catch em all.
re misidentified CMFs - I sell singles rather than sets. Thus I don't need to find all of a series. The only ones I sell sealed are particularly easy to identify.
